Beautiful pictures for all.

You don't need to be a photographer to know a great photo when you see one. And you don't need to be a photographer to take a great photo—you just need the D3500. It's as easy to use as a point-and-shoot, but it takes beautiful DSLR photos and videos that get noticed. It feels outstanding in your hands, sturdy and balanced with controls where you want them. It's compact, durable and versatile, ideal for travel. And it works seamlessly with compatible smartphones, making it easier than ever to share your great photos. Even if you've never picked up a DSLR camera, you can take beautiful pictures with D3500.

Easy. Portable. Amazing.

Take more memorable images. The photos you take with the D3500 capture more than the moment—they capture the feeling of the moment, a feeling that can be shared immediately with your friends and family and then relived for a lifetime.

Newbies welcome

If you can take a picture with your smartphone, you can take a great picture with the D3500. Auto Mode delivers amazing results in nearly any situation. If you want to learn while you shoot, turn on Guide Mode and follow simple on-screen guidance.

Less thinking. More shooting.

The D3500 is fast, responsive and simple to use. You won't be stuck fussing with camera controls while a great moment passes you by. Just point, shoot and share amazing photo after photo.

Shoot comfortably

The D3500 simply feels great in your hands. It's lightweight and balanced, even with a telephoto lens attached. Each button and dial is carefully placed for comfort and ease of use, and the menu system is simple and intuitive.

The day tripper

Small enough to be discrete, durable enough to withstand rough conditions; the camera is also available with two oustanding travel lenses, you'll never want to leave home without the D3500.

Smartphone and camera in harmony

Your camera's bridge to your world

Download Nikon's free SnapBridge app and your D3500 photos will appear right on a compatible smartphone or tablet* for posting to your favorite sites, sharing with friends and family or just as backups. You can even use the smartphone or tablet to remotely trigger the D3500 to take pictures.

The difference is in the details

The image sensor in the D3500 is approximately 15 times larger than those used in typical smartphones. That means much sharper, clearer photos with richer details—photos that immediately grab attention and get likes.

Colors that pop in any light

Inside every DSLR is a specialized computer that fine-tunes the settings for each shot. Nikon's renowned EXPEED image processing system is built upon a rich history of imaging know-how, and it helps the D3500 take beautifully vibrant photos and videos in nearly any condition.

Videos at the touch of a button

Recording beautiful video with the D3500 is as easy as shooting photos. Just flip the Live View lever and press the record button. You'll be capturing the sights and sounds in awesome 1080/60p Full HD video with stereo sound. Use your lens' zoom capability to shoot wide angle videos or tight close-ups.

Picture after amazing picture

Some of the best moments only last a split second. Press and hold the shutter button on the D3500 and capture up to 5 frames per second at full resolution with tack-sharp focus, ensuring you land the shot that matters.

Fast, accurate focusing

Unlike typical smartphones, fast-moving subjects are no problem for the D3500. 11 autofocus points are spread across the frame, and fulltime AF locks onto your subject and keeps it in focus while you capture amazing shot after shot.

Twice the fun

The D3500 Two Lens Kit includes two matched lenses to help you cover all the angles. The AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens is great for portraits, landscapes, videos and other wide perspective shots. The AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED is a versatile telephoto zoom lens that's great for sports, concerts, nature and more.

Endless possibilities

Every Nikon DSLR lens offers a fun new perspective. Discover new worlds with an extreme close-up macro lens. Give your backgrounds a dreamy out of focus effect with a fast prime lens. Capture the whole scene with an ultra-wide-angle zoom lens. The possibilities are endless.

Sharing Compatibility

The Nikon SnapBridge application must be installed on a compatible smart device before it can be used with this camera.
